Pagoda Acupuncture’s licensed practitioners employ ancient Chinese medical techniques to restore youthful looks to clients’ faces without chemicals or surgery. The session commences with a one-on-one consultation with Pagoda owner and founder Heather L. Romano, whose interview swiftly unearths patients’ concerns and desires, much like a bulldozer driven by Sigmund Freud. Practitioners then lightly prick facial skin with thin needles, unleashing a face-soothing free-for-all designed to stimulate collagen production, tighten pores, and boost local blood flow. Virtually painless for most patients, the treatment can help to firm, tone, and lift skin without the use of harsh chemicals, invasive surgery, or tiring face workouts led by Richard Simmons’ eyebrows.

More than 30 years after its inception, Cactus Salon & Spa and its team of continually educated stylists have not lost their edge—they earned the Long Island Press’s designation as Best Hair Salon and Best Day Spa in 2012. It's not surprising, then, that the salon has enjoyed such impressive growth over the years, with more than two dozen locations now blanketing most of Long Island. Though hair is still the focus—stylists craft hairdos that reflect either everyday ease or fashion-forward thinking—the repertoire has expanded to include everything from nail treatments and massages to permanent cosmetics and laser services. Since the roster of services is so broad, many clients take advantage of Cactus Club memberships, which give them the flexibility to try multiple services by deactivating the force fields between treatment rooms and granting a 33% discount on products and services on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
